Cooking Tool of the Week: Pastry Brush

We all need to oil our pans from time to time. Painting pans is lots of fun for kids of all ages. You don’t have to have a fancy or expensive pastry brush to do the job. The best and longest lasting pastry brush I ever had (all the others lost their bristles too fast and they were ending up in our food) was a good paint brush I bought at our local art store. Any brush will do, but if you can find a brush that is between one and a half and two inches, that is usually best and most versatile for painting both larger pans and smaller areas such as muffin tins. Of course, make sure the brush you choose has never had any paint on it before. ☺
